HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - The family and friends paid respects to the late Hattiesburg firefighter Ryan jones. His family held a memorial for him earlier this morning.

A prayer was dedicated to his family, especially his wife, Ashley, and his son, Lucas.

His mom, Dayna Jones, gave the eulogy. She spoke of his love and faith.

“Ryan knew of God’s love for him, he knew of God’s love for everyone, and, despite the struggles that we all have, the weakness that we have in these difficult bodies, he knew and had a deep testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” said Dayna.

Ryan died in a tragic motorcycle accident last month. He served the community at Hattiesburg Fire Station No. 9.
